It was 1982 I just got married and moved in with my husband. At the time he worked on an oil rig in the gulf coast. Even though he would be gone a week at a time I wasn’t scared to stay by myself. It was on the third night that he was gone that I had my first experience of what would be a fight for my soul.
I woke up around 2:30 am with the feeling of being watched. I was lying on my husband’s side of the bed when I turned over towards where I felt the presence. To my surprise there standing was my husband, or so I thought. I called out his name he did not answer me for the exception of just staring at me without blinking his eyelids and his body was flashing like a light bulb going off and on.
As I got out of the bed and walked over towards where …
I have had several experiences in my 30 years. Some scary, some pleasant. My first experience, which I did not realize was anything more than an imaginary friend at the time, started when I was about 4 yearsold. I had an imaginary friend named Michelle, but I only saw her when I was in the bathroom. Weird I know. I told my parents about her often, and then when I was almost 6 we moved to a new house, and I stopped seeing Michelle.
When I was an adult, my mom brought her up one day, and that’s when I found out that maybe Michelle wasn’t imaginary. Before my twin brother and I were born, my mom had a late miscarriage when she was about 5 months along. She was having sharp pains, and when she went to the bathroom, she started to miscarry. She rushed to the hospital, and they had to do a c-section to remove the dead …
My sister has recently started telling me about events that have happened to her in the past, I’m going to say some of them now.
She has said that when she was about 5 or before that she cant really remember (I wasn’t born yet) but she was getting changed in her room beside her wardrobe and she looks behind her and there is the figure standing leaning inwards to the door looking at her. But the weird thing is that the figure had no facial features! It was just a white figure and that was it. She closed her eyes and screamed out for mum. When my sister opened her eyes the figure was gone and that’s when mum came up the stairs, they looked around every room upstairs but there was nothing there!
The other story is about my sister again.
She had this dream about our granny not being well and having to go to hospital and …
My daughter is battling demons they are getting stronger. She has hid the exact details of what she is seeing for a while. She finally confessed to what she is seeing. She is a child, and is almost 10 years old. But, what she is witnessing is quite remarkable and yet frightening. I thought that I would share her confession with you.
These demons come to me in groups, they follow me around. I can hear them in my ears. They constantly whisper “Nightmare, Kill.” to me. I do not know what it really means. The demons won’t leave me alone. No one seems to believe me. My mother is the only person who really seems to believe me.
I communicated with a spirit tapping on the window several weeks ago. Now the thing will not leave me alone. I feel like I am going crazy.
I can see the demons now. They have horns. Their eyes are black. Sometimes …
In November of 2010 I lost one of the best persons I ever met in my life, my grandfather, I was truly sorry for him as well as my family and his friends. But it was then that things started happening…
3 months after his death me and my friends started going to the secnd floor of my house where my uncle used to live. One day we heard a noise from the stairs and everyone of us started hiding his cigarettes because some of my buddies are smoking (we are 15 years old you see) and so when we opened the door we saw nothing but dark in the stairs, then one hour later when I and 2 of my buddies were left we heard a voice and it was like choking to death or something I can’t explain it, we heard it a little and my friends were wondering what it was… I said “it’s my grandfather” in …
About 42 years ago, I was a young boy about 6 or 7 years old, I looked under our house which was on a big farm out in the country. No other houses in sight. When I looked I saw two big glowing red eyes looking right at me.
After about 2 or 3 seconds of just being stationary they started going around each other in a perfect circle. I could see the red trail behind them because they were moving. After 2 or 3 seconds, they started moving off to the left still circling each other and moving away at the same time. It looked like they were rolling away and they got smaller and smaller and disappeared.
I quickly ran in the house and tried to tell my mother what I had seen but she was talking to someone and wouldn’t take me seriously after all I was a very young child and she said it was probably …
I’ve had my share of experiences. I attribute most of them to my ill advised adventures with a Ouija board as a youth. My husband has listened with dubious respect throughout the years; however, he had never had a close up experience like mine.
One night in a rental home where I had been fearful of a small area near the hall/bathroom, I thought I saw a shadow. I proceeded to tell him, “look, look, didn’t you see that?”
“No. I never see the stuff you do.” We argued slightly over the fact that he, yes, believed my stories, but that he couldn’t sincerely share in them. He swore that by the time he looked, it was gone. So we settled down and decided to turn off the T.V. for the night. Within about three minutes, I heard a deep, low, female laugh that seemed to come from right beside me in bed…between my husband and me. I screamed, “Holy …
These shadow creatures, whatever they are have been the main source of fear for my friend and me. We call them Shades. The first time I can clearly remember seeing one was in my basement once, many years ago, when I was watching TV on my couch and I turned to look to the dark back of the room (because I felt like I was being watched) and there was a strange shape at the far end of the room, totally black, nothing else but a shadowy outline and it was in a bizarre, possibly hunched over or crouched position. Just sitting there. I whirled back to the TV in fear and looked back again but it was gone.
Now, I’m going to stray a little from the subject BUT it’s still relevant, I believe. When I was 6 years old, at elementary school, in mid fall, my friends and I wanted to make a leaf tornado. Obviously the odds …
When I was young, about six years old, I would talk to a girl named Shelly. I remember she had long, wavy brown hair and very pretty green eyes. She ‘lived’ in what back then was the playroom. Shelly told me she was eleven but really wanted to be thirteen, but that “She could never do that”. I was really confused but played with her anyway. I don’t think I ever told my parents about her either.
One day Shelly and I were sitting just talking (I don’t remember what about) when she started crying. I was worried for her and asked why. She only replied “I miss them!” I would later find out who she was talking about.
She would teach me about stuff like an older sister would, and she comforted me when I had nightmares.
I would talk to her at mealtimes and my parents just figured I was playing.
Well, I was about 32 maybe 33 and I lived at 47 Windsor Road Chew Brook Liverpool. The house was built in the late 1740′s.
It all started about 3 months of moving in, I was painting on the third floor of the five floor building. I felt like someone was staring at me from behind however when I turned no one was in sight. I immediately stopped painting and washed and went to sleep at 11pm. I was awoke at 3am by the sound of the TV, and so, I got out of bed and went to turn the TV off and went back to sleep.
The next day the supernatural happenings got worse. Every single light-bulb flew out of the socket. I thought still nothing of it and at 11pm I went to bed. Again at 3am the same as the previous day I was awoke by the same noise of the TV and so I went turn …
